Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Pawel Kordek, and welcome to my course, Advanced Pandas. I am a software engineer at Feedzai where I develop data processing applications to fight financial fraud. Nowadays, Python is getting more and more popular in the field of data analysis, and pandas is becoming the preferred library for many data scientists. In this course, we are going to explore non-trivial parts of pandas and learn how to use it in order to get full control over your datasets. Some of the major topics that we will cover include joins, handling multidimensional data, time series and windows, and plotting. By the end of this course, you will know how to handle complex datasets and analyze your data in a principled way with pandas. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Python and have basic experience with pandas, for example, from my course on Pandas Fundamentals. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn pandas with the Advanced Pandas course, at Pluralsight.
